Take one Lifestyle® 25 Series II home theater system, Bose of course, in a confined space (like my new living quarters), add his ‘Royal Badness’ (the King of Kewl – Prince), a bottle of Beringer White Zin – the house is clean, really…really clean – it’s almost midnight after a long weekend and tons of things to do and most of them accomplished, and I’m going to write until I fall off my chair. And add pictures. If I just stop in the middle of a sentence, you’ll know I fell off the chair. Continue reading Sunday, January 29, 2006

A shortie. I may end up reformatting my hard drive sometime this weekend. #*)^+|)*&@!!! I made it two years with Windows XP, which is the longest I’ve ever made it with any operating system, without having to reformat. Little glitches here, little glitches there. Crap! Then a few ultra big glitches. I will have to see how I feel about it and how much time I have set aside to mess with it…and if the ‘glitches’ continue. Continue reading Tuesday, January 24, 2006

Badugi is up and running at Bellagio…only hitch is that it can only be played in Black Chip games so if you hoped to play it at a lower limit swallow your dismay and disappointment or take out a loan on your house. What exactly is it? It’s a four card low game – not of the same suit – best possible A-2-3-4 – played like Deuce to 7 Triple Draw. With a few complications – A-2-3-3 is a three-card hand as the pair takes one of the cards out of play. The same thing happens if you have two of a suit in the hand, it then becomes a three-card hand. That should give you an idea. Continue reading Tuesday, January 17, 2006

Has it really been a couple of days? More like four, I believe but I can’t remember. My whole sleep schedule has turned around and I’ve got to be gearing up for going back to work soon…painful. Changing my sleep schedule around is painful. It’s 11:30 PM and I’m dead tired…oh drear…this will never do. How can I convince my brain to stay up until 4 or 5 AM? *Slap, smack – no whining* Continue reading Saturday, January 14, 2006

This is a shorty. I move myself into the coach today and head across town by Boulder Station to an RV park…length of stay there unknown right now. I will be offline for approximately two days as I settle into new surroundings and figure out how I fit into my new lifestyle. Back soon!

This is really a useless bit of trivia, just a going nowhere kind of thread, but it seemed important to me at the moment. When I first kicked off the diary, I wrote only about events that happened when I dealt a game. Even then, it would be hard to say that I wrote about poker. I wrote and still write about people. People are what flip my switch. And people are what make up the game of poker. Poker would be so damn boring if it was only about hand histories and beats/wins. On BlogShares.Com, my blog has been voted for the following categories: Poker, Life, Journal, Personal, and Card Games. I am pleased as I feel it fits well into all of those categories. Do I understand the BlogShares concept? Nope. But it’s fun to go check it out and peek in at other people’s blogs too. Continue reading Friday, January 6, 2006
